Jade – our Associate Designer – is one of our recent hires, but she’s already making a big difference. Sitting between Somo’s marketing and design teams, she shares what inspired her to become a designer and what she loves most about working at Somo.
1. Describe your job in three words:
Amazing. Creative. Fun.
2. What’s your favourite thing about Somo?
It may sound like a cliché, but my favourite thing about Somo is the people that work here – everyone is so welcoming and nice! It’s very comforting to know that you can just go up to anyone at any given moment and ask for advice. Everyone works so hard, but is so open and approachable at the same time. It really is a brilliant place to work.
3. Why did you choose to become a designer?
I became a designer because I always loved art and IT. I remember asking my dad what could I do when I graduate to combine these two areas. “How about Graphic Design?”, he said. I replied: “Okay, let’s do it!” and loved the whole journey since then.
My dad was – and still is – the one who inspired me to become a designer and to do it to the best of my ability. Growing up was tough where money was concerned. Watching him progress so far in his career (and look after five kids as a single parent) is a massive inspiration to me. In ten years, I would love to be in the position he is in today.
